A major new attempt, by an Orthodox Christian and widely respected bioethicist, to articulate the Orthodox mind concerning issues such as abortion, contraception, euthanasia, sexual ethics, marriage, and much more. Engelhardt brings perspectives to this arena not often heard: the ascetical, ''therapeutic'' tradition of the ancient Church and the Orthodox East today.
An Eighth Day View:
This volume addresses the morality at the foundations of Christian bioethics. Drawing on the Christianity of the first millennium, Engelhardt provides the ontological and epistemological foundations for a Christian bioethics that can remedy the onesidedness of a secular bioethics.
